We had a very enthusiastic local guide who guided us through the beautiful historic sites and buildings in the city. Through her stories and anecdotes, the history of communism in Hungary was revived for us. Highly recommended.
We hadden een zeer enthousiaste lokale gids die ons langs de mooie historische plekken en gebouwen in de stad heeft geleid. Door haar verhalen en anekdotes herleefde voor ons de geschiedenis van het communisme in Hongarije. Een aanrader.

Very good tour! Zsuzsanna, our guide had contacted us in advance by mail and clearly agreed where we would meet - at the opera. Lots of interesting information about places, statues, buildings and of course the history behind them. It's great how Zsuzsanna got our sons of 11 and 17 to be as captivated as we are. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to Budapest.
Ontzettend goede rondleiding! Zsuzsanna, onze gids had vooraf contact opgenomen via de mail en duidelijk afgesproken waar we elkaar zouden treffen - bij de opera. Veel interessante info over plaatsen, beelden, gebouwen en natuurlijk de geschiedenis erachter. Geweldig hoe Zsuzsanna onze zonen van 11 en 17 jaar net zo geboeid kreeg als ons. Deze tour was zeker een van de hoogtepunten van ons bezoek aan Boedapest.
